“I’m Chasing The Moon” — lyrics & chords

Words and music by Andru Bemis
  1. I’m chasing the moon, I’m riding the line. Just trying to make up the time. I’m on my way back to you, I’m trying to get back to you. If you tell me not to ride this way again I don’t ever want to see the day. Pray the Lord my soul to keep my tires on the road. Till I see you with the sun in your eyes in the morning, I’ll follow the moon
  2. I’m chasing my heart, I don’t know where it’s gone. I know it won’t be long before it shows up at your door, I’ll find it at your door. If you tell me not to knock on your door again I don’t ever want to see the day. Pray the Lord my soul to keep, I’ll follow my heart
